Epiphany Term Worship: Stories and Song

Dear United Parish Family,

Over the past 6 weeks, our children and youth (and teachers and staff) have embarked on our second ever Epiphany Term! The Church School teachers have been using a curriculum created by members of our Children & Youth Deepening Ministry Team that explores Jesus' parables and the lessons we learn through stories. These lessons have been centered around learning how we always have a chance to start again, how a small person can make a BIG difference, asking ourselves 'what time is it?' and learning how to be 'Good Samaritans' in the world!

This Sunday, our children and youth will be leading our worship service, presenting what they've learned via song, drama, reflection, and prayer. They've been working hard (alongside their teachers and parent volunteers) to translate activities they've done in the classroom into elements of a worship service, and to invite you into the celebration of the culmination of Epiphany, the season of divine revelations!

I often wax poetic to others about how our children and youth continually impress me- and this is no exception. Over the last 6 weeks, I've seen our kids embody tenderness, inquisitiveness, a thirst for justice, empathy, and friendship.

I invite you all to join us for worship on Sunday at 11am in the Sanctuary to experience the wonder of the season of Epiphany; for as the prophet Isaiah foretold, "a little child shall lead them...".

In faith and song,

Amy & Susan
